Spiritual Enlightenment to the tune of The Kinks song!
Anand Sara, a graduate of the 5 Day Silent Retreat from many years ago sent this, and it was such a delight, we wanted to share it with you:
"Hi Lola, I introduced a friend, Shawn Purcell, to your spiritual enlightenment work several weeks ago. He was so divinely inspired that these lyrics poured forth from him to the tune of the Kinks' song of your same name, "Lola". I know you will thoroughly enjoy Shawn's amazing rendition, as I did!"
Sung to the tune of "Lola" by the Kinks:
I met her through a friend in old San Jose
Where we meditate and talk about Eckhart Toll-aT-o-l-l-e Toll-a
She said there's a teacher who's got it right
I asked her the name and in a soft bright voice she said Lola
L-o-l-a Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Well I'm not the world's most spiritual guy
But when I read her book I felt something inside
Thanks to Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why people "process" for years 'stead of gettin' a hand
From my Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Well I took her book and read all night
Some hairballs, but that's alright
She opened me up to my inner divine
I get out of the way and all is fine
Well I'm not a warm and fuzzy guy
But with her angel eyes I may just trust in my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
PS - This girl knows how to play air guitar! Have you ever danced with the vacuum or the broom?
Go ahead, you know you want to....
